First off, majority of the features of the phone are incredible. The screen and definition is ridiculously good. The OS from what I've found is fast, stable, and easy to navigate. This is what has kept me coming back to Samsung all these years. Battery life and charging is great with very fast charging and typically more than a day and a half of battery life with moderate use (not gaming). Now to the camera. What a disaster. My S9+, S10+, and Note 10+ all took great pics with minimal effort. Now don't get me wrong, when the conditions are perfect, no one is moving, lighting is great and the weather is serene, than the camera is phenomenal. But low light selfies, low lights main camera pics, quick pics of motion etc are all awful. Basically the camera processing and focusing simply can't keep up. Expect grainy and over smudged pics that'll make your friends and colleagues cringe when they find out how much you paid for this phone. Sadly it'll be the first phone ever that I try and move to get something else at a likely loss. It's that bad. Shame shame Samsung.

So far, best phone I've owned!

5 out of 5 rating

Will · 2 days ago

Yes, I'd recommend this product.

I have had this phone for about 3 weeks now. And it is honestly THE BEST PHONE I've owned EVER! I have owned an S-line phone now since the 6, and they've only gotten better and better! I am late to this one, but have not been disappointed yet. I learned my lesson as these phones tend to be fragile and somewhat slippery, by purchasing protectors for the screen, the camera, and an otter box case. With that being said, I have yet to tap in to this phones true potential. The camera is amazing! The lag is almost non-existent, and the resolution is outstanding! The size and weight of the phone is just fine for me...slight larger than an s10 plus, and comparable weight. I have always felt that these phones were easier to operate than the iPhone (I converted my wife a few yrs ago, so I have tried lol), and it is just as I expected. I even had all my options/info from my s10 plus swapped over, so it felt like my old phone only way better. I did mention the camera already, but this camera is something else! The directors view, single take, 100x zoom...only way I will upgrade to the 22 ultra is if it is significantly better...if snapdragon is that much better, I will. But if not, I will have this phone for a very long time!

Horrible phone

1 out of 5 rating

Ugh007 · 4 days ago

This phone lacks anything useful. The camera is not good, battery life is short, screen is fine. Operating system is terrible. Android on a pixel is good, but Samsung ruins the experience. I'm switching back to Apple after this disaster of a device.

Samsung phones are not robust and lot of reboot

Android os is so confusing and not reliable. It would random reboot. After multiple visit with store, they wouldn’t replace it either. With Android, privacy and security always suffers. No more android phone

Camera glass just breaks.

Found the camera glass just shattered. I didn't hit it on anything, just bad design carried over from what is apparently a known issues for the s20. This is my first Samsung and will be my last.

liked the s7 better

my review of S21 · 7 days ago

The Google speech texts text is not as good as it was on the S7 the Bixby was actually worse I have had the phone for a month now And I'm still having issues with the speech text I spend more time editing than if I had just typed it out. Other issues are the volume control, they need some kind of lock, it' I'm constantly turning it up. next I'm getting too many advertisements Notifications on the lock screen from Samsung, that they don't let you turn off. The last issue is the size itself, the phones are starting to to get too big, if I want a larger screen I'll buy a tablet. I am in Construction and in my back pocket. I feel like I'm going to snap it

Very solid phone, not 5 star though

USA patriot 100 percent · 7 days ago

Yes, I'd recommend this product.

I really like this phone. The pictures are the best on any phone I've ever used. I don't really feel like writing anything negative because mostly it's awesome, there's just every once in a while where something seems a little less bullet proof than my last Samsung Galaxy S9. I just liked it better, it seemed a little more tough and dependable... I don't know, you'll like it. Buy it

K A T · 7 days ago

I'm really disappointed in this phone, It will not stay on fast charging, Yes I have tried the cord that came with it and bought 2 new ones, It over heats to the point I shut it down and put it down. It freezes and has a glitch to it. I don't think I will ever buy another Samsung after reading reviews on other phones. Definitely not worth the money. I got it in March 2021

Why no SD memory card slot? For Samsung to continually upgrade the camera systems and ever larger file sizes, we NEED the convenience of memory cards!!! It looks like I will have to stay with my S10 Plus until you build S22 with memory card slots!!!
